Nope, version 8 now.  I think we are like one of the first 5 of their
customers to go to it.

They did demo iSolutions, but never mentioned it was MS based...
interesting.  Of course at the time, their "Charleston" interface was still
in Beta, so I gues they didn't go into too much detail.

As fo now though, our company has gotten tired of a lot of PMSC stuff, and
is looking at a company named Inspire.  They run their software on: IBM AIX
with Oracle.  2 to 3 NT servers and a Workstation to do cycles.

My super, who is an AS/400 guy, doesn't see how a PC workstation can handle
the cycle load.  He is VERY skeptical, but our CFO makes the decisions and
odds are won't ask for too much input.

I am just not keen on using NT for mission ciritcal stuff... especially
after I got everythign running linux.  I do NOT feel like gutting my beloved
network and going MS.

and their insurance zealot Kevin Kelly was pushing it big time at the Acord
Conferences. A lot if it stemmed from IBM dropping OfficeVision of which is
integrated into their software. Their web based solution (iSolutions)is M$,
with the iSeries data replicated on a Sequel Server.

big a resource hog to do it anywhere else.
